Whoop Wireless completes Higher Education System Upgrade
Whoop Wireless completes system upgrade for University campus.
Whoop Wireless, a turnkey provider of in-building cellular and public safety platforms, has completed a total in-building system upgrade for a higher education customer that will allow for expansion on future in building cellular and public safety platforms. “This project is with a long-standing higher education customer that has continued to give Whoop Wireless an opportunity to earn their business by investing in technology platforms that will serve the organization and their student population through the next generation of in-building technology that provides a safe and secure environment for all that are engaged with the university,” stated Mark Strittmatter, Vice President of Sales and Customer Service at Whoop Wireless. The process for the system upgrade started approximately twelve months ago as the university was considering various options to position themselves for the next five years for in-building technology. “The strategic planning process is an area where our management team and staff really excel. Our senior management team has over 100 years of telecommunications experience in the RF, in-building platform, back-haul/transport and OSP markets. To have that knowledge base within one team is a tremendous intangible asset for our current and prospective customer base. Each member of our senior management team has also sat in the chair of our customer base and understands the expectations from their viewpoint – again just part of the Whoop Wireless advantage as we address the challenges that customers present us on a daily basis. It is always a learning opportunity for both parties, and that is how we like to conduct our business.” Strittmatter concluded as he spoke about the project.
Flexible Financial Models
The CAPEX model is for those customers that want a one-time CAPEX expense with a monthly managed service plan; the Flex program is a model that involves an activation fee with a monthly managed service plan; the Cellular and/or Public Safety as a Service (CaaS/PSaaS) plan involves a model that includes a minimal activation fee/or zero down along with a monthly managed service plan.
Whoop Equipment and Project Management
Whoop’s engineering and design teams will custom design a model that fits the budget of any building from 25,000 square feet to 1,000,000+ square feet including venue-based settings (4G/LTE/5G). If you want scalability, reliability with a cost-efficient platform you have come to the right place.
The patented whoopFAST™ Small Cell Interface (SCI) delivers 4G/LTE in-building coverage for the four Tier 1 mobile network operators, serving >98% of users Day-1. It includes ten radio inputs and four outputs. The inputs include eight small cell (femtocell) inputs and two over-the-air (OTA) inputs. The OTA inputs use band-specific repeaters to boost the OTA signal for simulcasting throughout the in-building coverage area. The small cell inputs are operator-specific, with the capacity of each small cell switchable to any of the four outputs. Up to 50 antennas may be connected to each SCI. A Whoop Antenna Array Element (AAE) is connected to each antenna to boost output power through the antenna. This enables Enterprises to distribute a femtocell signal to a coverage area 50x larger than the area of a typical stand-alone femtocell. The SCI passive switch matrix optimizes the delivery of capacity where required in the coverage area. Capacity may be simulcasted throughout the building, or mapped to targeted coverage zones, based on enterprise capacity requirements and available signal source capacity.
